    Me and my brother drove down to Springfield for the mile this year to find out it was cancelled because of rain. :cry
    Looks like there will be a double header on Labor Day weekend with the rescheduled rain date.

    Can anybody tell me about Colonial Downs race in Virginai on August 24.
    This looks to be the closest mile race to my area and I am thinking about going.
    Also the track is listed as 1.25 mile and not 1 mile.

    Thanks Roger

    Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't realize that they had made an addition to the schedule. I'm heading down to Hagerstown in a couple weeks, and I definitely will have this one on my RADAR.

    anyone heading to Lima? 50% chance of rain at this point, probably wait till morning before deciding if I ride over. If I go, I'll be camping in the parking lot.

    Who's going?


    Just got back from seeing the Barbara Fritchie Classic in Frederick, MD. 17 heat races, and some experts were in attendance with the Hagerstown round coming up this Saturday.

    What a nice kid, but I guess they all really are. He was so pumped to win his first race, and the interviews he gave were very heartfelt, not the usual party line BS that multi-time winners seem to perfect. I hope there are many more wins in his future.

    There was a large crowd last night, and the singles races were hotly contested. The singles main saw a real duel for first between two riders. Nice evening once the heat abated a bit, and some great racing.

    Barry and the boys did an excellent job putting on the show. The announcing team really seems to click, and they alternate between some informative reporting of rules explanation, etc., while getting some timely interviews and pit reports. Well done to everyone involved, it was a pleasure to listen to that quality of work.
